Each spring MIAMI Women invites the entire Miami community to join in personal and professional development. The symposium on 5/3 features keynote addresses and panel discussions from inspirational thought leaders, interactive workshops, and networking elements for Miamians at all levels in their careers. Among our amazing women speakers this year is Barbara Pierce Bush, Co-founder and Board Chair of Global Health Corps, who will help inspire you based on the 2024 theme: We Will Shape Tomorrow. The gathering also includes Hawk Tank Thursday night and those who can't make it in-person (Armstrong Student Center) are encouraged to watch Hawk Tank online.

Hawk Tank is a “fast pitch” event during which Miami students, faculty, and staff who have applied for a MIAMI Women Giving Circle grant present their ideas. All are invited to watch and then Giving Circle members vote on which projects should receive funding. Think “Shark Tank,” where Giving Circle members are the sharks. More than half a million dollars have been awarded at Hawk Tank!
